Membership of the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education is open to all higher education institutions, related organisations and agencies, and is by annual or three-yearly subscription.
Institutional membership demonstrates a clear commitment to developing leadership and management capabilities at all levels. The heart of our services and benefits is the continuation and enhancement of our contribution to, and investment in, the higher education sector.
Investing in the sector
We have continued to make a substantial investment into UK higher education in the last twelve months, with a significant part exclusively for our members’ benefit, and are investing further for 2014-15:
The Aurora initiative for early career women leaders launched in 2013-14 attracted over 500 participants to its first cohort; in 2014-15, we will retain the £1000 price for members (although we will increase the price for non-members), and will be putting in place additional support for role models and champions to help embed this important initiative further
Increased savings of up to 10% for 2014-15 via a fixed membership subscription rate for a three year commitment. This option was introduced at the start of the 2011-12 membership year – offering members an opportunity to make savings on the total cost of membership, and we are pleased to continue to offer this considerable discount. Around one third of institutions have signed up – and they are fairly evenly spread across the range of membership bands. Three year members will not of course be affected by any subscription changes during their three year membership.
Standard membership benefits
In addition to the membership investments and services outlined above, all members benefit from the following standard benefits:
